'Tuesday' - progress on page 1

It's been VERY slow going, but I have been making some progress with the first page of the comic, which Jez and I are calling 'Tuesday' - as a working title anyway.

Here's the proof :

Not brilliant, by any means - but it's not a bad start !

What ? No drawings AGAIN ? What gives ??

Hello faceless reader ( unless your'e my mum - in that case, Hi Mum ! ). You might be wondering what's happened with all the drawings. You're right to wonder ! Here's the skinny :

1. I've been slack / somewhat intimidated.

And that's pretty much it. I could make up a bunch of excuses about work, kids and such - but it really boils down to the reason above.

Intimidated ? Yup. My pal Jez has come up with a pretty cool idea for a comic story, and I worry that I'm going to suck at actually drawing it. It's not like I haven't been thinking about the story, I have tried to do some page layouts ( which haven't turned out terrifically well ). But I worry.

Funny thing is - pretty much all the webcomics I read sucked in terms of art in the early days ( or at least when compared to the current stuff ). I really need to just step up to the plate and DO something, and not worry about what people will think about it. This will largely be an experiment for both Jez and myself - it doesn't have to be The Sandman out of the gate.

So - current resolution. Get an initial layout of the first couple of pages up before the end of the month. Let's see how well I do.

What this space.
